Member FAQs

Q:  Who is eligible to join SAHRA?

A:  Regular SAHRA membership can be granted to HR practitioners (both exempt and non-exempt), vendors and consultants who serve HR professionals, employment/labor attorneys, and academicians. Other types of membership are available for students, and individuals who do not qualify for membership in other categories but have an interest in HR. There are specific requirements in each category which can be found in the SAHRA Constitution located under the About SAHRA section of this website. Memberships are not transferable, and remain with the individual it was originally assigned to. 

Q:  What do my annual membership dues provide?

A:  Your dues payment gets you access to the network of SAHRA which opens the door for knowledge and information sharing with over 200 HR professionals in the Springfield metro area. Members have access to our members e-mail listserv which allows users to pose questions to the membership and get answers back almost immediately. You will receive our monthly newsletter, SAHRA Biz, which contains important legislative reminders and updates on current HR issues. Members also get the opportunity to take part in at least one complementary “member appreciation” event each year.

Q:  What are the monthly meetings like?

A:  Monthly meetings are generally held on the third Thursday of each month, from 11:30 – 1:00. Meetings typically include a speaker who discusses a topic relevant to the HR profession. When possible, speakers are certified for HRCI and SHRM recertification credit.

Q:  What opportunities are there for professional development?

A:  In addition to the professional development that occurs at monthly meetings (see question above), SAHRA hold one half-day and one full-day professional development event annually. These events are generally certified for HRCI and SHRM recertification credit and cover topics relevant to the HR profession.
